What do you guys think? it's just an idea which needs your thoughts!

I think your idea is quite valid. Any kind of collaboration between experienced people will always benefit those who need assistance.
Now, as us experienced Photoshopers know, it takes time to learn how to use the basic features, let alone the more complex features. (I still learn new stuff almost every time I use it). So....as you were saying about a 'once-and-for-all' tutorial, that would be great. Perhaps it can me more of an FAQ that can be updated on a continuous basis for others to add, comment and feedback on.
I think somthing like that will definitely be valueable.

However, my approach has been quite different. There has to be a reason the person wants to use photoshop. Whether they want to edit a picture or make a website. Either way the best solution is to tell them to try and do it themselves. It sounds rude, but I don't mean it that way:
I learned photoshop by playing with it - I knew I wanted to do something and I pressed buttons and drew lines until it happened. Our friends need to do the same thing. If they run into trouble along the way, we can always bail them out, but its ultimately up to them to teach themselves.
I have tried this method before and surprisingly it works well

Crazy Bat, that's true, the idea is probably just cosmic to embrace all aspects of photoshop from the beginning level and up. And the form of FAQ would be more appropriate for it. See, that's why collaboration is the best way to do project - the tutorial has got a more suitable form already! And we haven't really started writing it yet! And thank you for your support!

And for those who are not designers, Photoshop can be a good toy to play with editing their pictures and other things.
